The weak get punched in the head

Pacifism in this war only helps the enemy. Don’t believe me? Arthur Chrenkoff has translated a Polish-language interview with Marek Edelman, the last living leader of the Warsaw Ghetto revolt of 1943. A few quotes from Edelman:

Who defeated Hitler and saved Europe from fascism? The French? No, the Americans did. We thanked them then because they saved us. Today we criticise them because they’re saving somebody else.

Unfortunately there’s more hatred in men than love. Those who murder understand only force and nothing else. And the only force that is able to stand against them is the American democracy.

Do you seriously think that [withdrawing from Iraq] will save [Spain] from further attacks? No. The weak just get punched in the head. Pacifism lost a long time ago.
